Lamb Tagine with Potatoes and Toasted Almonds

Image img_9685.jpg

The word tagine (tajine, الطاجين) is both the name of a North African stew, and the conical earthenware pot in which it is usually cooked. The use of ceramics in North Africa was the result of Roman influence, and these dishes have been enjoyed for thousands of years. Tagine pots are unique in that they trap steam and return the condensed liquid to the dish, enabling chefs to make tender foods with minimal added water, which is ideal in areas Read more

I’ve been on the road, touring the continent for a solid 5 weeks now, and I’ve loved it more than I anticipated. It’s been amazing to meet all of the Nomsters who showed up to support the launch of our new cookbook, Ready or Not!, and despite my introverted nature, I’ve had a blast getting to hear your stories and kitchen triumphs—and to give you hugs in person, too. That said, one of the things I’ve missed out on (besides family time with Henry Read more

Has Ancestral Health Gone Mainstream?

Image 5883542473_48cfcec655_z-200x200.jpg

When I published Your Personal Paleo Code in 2013 (now retitled The Paleo Cure), the central idea of the book—that the mismatch between our genes and the modern environment is the primary driver of chronic disease—encountered both skepticism and criticism in the popular media. Both the mainstream press and the conventional medical establishment seemed even more dubious of the premise that we might be able to learn something useful by studying Read more

My Struggle with Hypothalamic Amenorrhea (HA). How I got my period back.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed my post last week where I welcomed back my monthly visitor (this is what my grandmother would say) after a 10-year absence. I’ve kept pretty quiet about my struggle with HA. To be truthful, admitting my illness made me feel like an imposter and a fraud. How could someone whose job and life revolved around helping women find and nourish their own fertility be infertile and unhealthy herself?I’ve Read more

Achieving Work-Life Balance with a Clear Mind

Image Clear-Mind_Bottle-Store_540x600.png

As I’ve been writing my fourth book, Paleo Principles, over the last year, I’ve sought out ways to keep my focus up and my energy stable. When I wrote The Paleo Approach and The Paleo Approach Cookbook, I was burning the candle at both ends and dug myself deep into a hole that ended in severe adrenal burnout (see more in “Managing Stress” and “How Stress Undermines Your Health”).

How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Image how-to-make-Chocolate-Peanut-Butter-Cups-recipe-7-800x533.jpg

Growing up, there was always one candy that stood above the rest to me: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, or just Reese’s for short. There’s something special about that magical ratio of chocolate to peanut butter that just tastes so good.
